Talking Re: What is blooming in your garden today (other plants)?

My crazy Home Depot Anna Apple was dying rapidly a month ago. I re-potted it into a 16 gallon $5.00 Walmart plastic barrel with Jungle grow potting mix. Now its not only revived, its blooming!

Default Re: What is blooming in your garden today (other plants)?

In the Spring my little boy ran amuck with a pair of secateurs and chopped all but one of the leaves off my Strelitzia reginae. A plant that I had been nursing since I had grown it from seed about 5 years (older than he is, in fact). To say I was gutted was a bit of an understatement, but when he looked at me and said 'sorry Dad' I had to forgive. Anyway it turns out he knows more about birds of paradise than I do because since then it has pushed out 5 leaves and is now pushing out 2 flower spikes. This is the first time it's flowered.

Default Blossom sprouting out of a banana leaf

Blossom sprouting out of a banana leaf!!!




Here is proof!


Well, I am only just lying a little bit




What has actually happened, was that a spent blossom had dropped off a Canna Australia,
landed on this leaf and stuck.



In my delusion, I fancied myself improving on nature, scavenged a more fresh blossom from
the canna and tried to replicate, what happened naturally. It didn’t work. I could not make
the fresh blossom stick short of using glue.

Thus beaten, I stuck the fresh flower on a horizontal leaf.

Default Water Hyacinths

Water Hyacinths



They are beautiful free floating tropicals


I tried to introduce them into our large pond, but they kept on dying on me. First I thought,
that they might by highly sensitive to residual herbicides, which some fool tossed into the
water years ago, until I learned that the Koi consider their rootes a delicacy.




Therefore I did the second best by dropping a couple into floating flowerpots,
held up by Styrofoam collars.


To those of you, who live in Florida, eat you heart out! water Hyacinths are illegal there
because they are extremely invasive and would choke up your lakes and waterways in
no time. For once we northerners have the advantage in tropicals, because the first frost
will kill them and the few water plant dealers keep over winter multiply to vast numbers,
before you can say “May’s here”.

Default What is that bug?

Well, it is not exactly about what is blooming, those are just ordinary petunias.
It is more about the bug, that is going after their nectar.











It appears to be nocturnal. I noticed it in twilight and took these pictures with flash.
It did not seem to be bothered by that.

It's a White Lined Sphinx moth, Hyles lineata. A lot of people call them hummingbird or hawkmoths due to their love of hovering around and drinking nectar from flowers at night, creating a heavy buzzing noise with their wings.

Thank you, Ilia,

when I first noticed that "thing", it was getting pretty dark and I first thought it was a
hummingbird on a "late night out in town", but it seemed to be sitting down, not hovering.
Well, the camera resolved that part of it and you provided the proper ID.

The surprising part to me was that it did not appear to be affected by the flashes
of the camera at all. I took quite a few photos, because it was flitting about quite
a bit and due to the delay caused by the flash I had just as many misses, as I had hits.

Thank you again,
Olaf

What is blooming in that pot to the right in that picture is a Mandevilla; nothing special, it has
been blooming there all summer, but I thought the sunset pastels in the background made the
photo worthwhile.
